He worked to raise his family as a plumber, but supplied their needs as a hunter and fisherman. They ate all kinds of different meat made to look and taste like chili along with the hoards of fish he brought home every Sunday. On one of his fishing trips he and his best friend, Perry Ellis and two other guys came home with over 150 fish, which made the Grand Prairie News.
